Triple Chocolate Cookies

There is little to say about these little bites of chocolate bliss.  Well actually, I could talk about about their intense chocolate flavor, considering there is melted chocolate and cocoa powder in the batter.  I could also talk about the little punches of milk chocolate chips you get in every bite.  Furthermore, I could talk about the texture of these cookies, the chewy edges and soft, melty centers, but I won’t.  I’ll just say this- chocolate lovers, you need to make these cookies.  I don’t care if you have schoolwork (it’s the summer anyways, so you ought not to), have an important presentation at work tomorrow, or are on a diet (although admittedly, these are not diet food), you need to make these now. And if you do, send some to me, please?
